Federal and local cooperation on immigration enforcement in Nashville is governed by section 287(g) of the Immigration and Nationality Act. The most comprehensive overview ever published about the implementation of 287(g) in Nashville was written a few weeks ago by Brantley Hargrove of the Nashville Scene. The focus of Hargrove's story is a legal challenge to 287(g), but the context given is encyclopedic. Read it here.
The Tennessean followed up with its own article, here.
Hargrove's response/follow-up to the Tennessean piece compliments his original story with excerpts from the documents governing 287(g). That follow-up is here.
If you've ever heard about "287(g)" but want a deep dive, read Hargrove's work.
